The charming town of Riga is the capital of Latvia. The official language is Latvian, but since Latvia is a constituent republic of the USSR between 1940 and 1991, a significant minority are Russian speakers.

Getting around in Riga is relatively easy and inexpensive. Taxis are cheap but often try to take advantage, so be prepared for a journy round the houses before reaching the desired location! Trams, buses and trolleys are also available and easy to use. Ticket prices cost between 20 to 25 cents in Latvia for a single trip.
